Submitting Your Project for an Estimate


Thank you for your interest in working with Indigo. To start the conversation about which services are best for your project, time frame, and cost, please submit a sample per the following guidelines.


Email Authors: For an editing estimate, please email a Word doc of a sample of up to twenty double-spaced pages from the middle of your manuscript, a synopsis of your project, your total word count, and a description of your goals and inspiration for the project, your background in writing, and the number of revisions you've completed on the manuscript.

For short stories and essays, please send the complete work as well as the above information about you and the background of the project.

For design services, please email a description of the project, your total word count, whether you're interested in both cover and interior design or just one.

For publicity services, please email basic details about the project, including title, genre, and where you are in the writing or production process. We'll be in touch with a questionnaire for more specific details so we can put together a list of recommended services and an estimate.

Send all materials to info@indigoediting.com. We'll match you with an editor, designer, or publicist specializing in your genre, who will prepare a free sample edit, if applicable, and cost estimate for you. If you were referred by a friend or colleague, be sure to let us know so we can thank them!


Publishers: Please email a description of the types of projects you are seeking editors or designers for as well as your time frame and payment schedule to info@indigoediting.com. Our editors are happy to take house editing tests if your editorial department requires them, and our designers have portfolios available for your review.


All samples submitted to Indigo are held confidential and are protected under intellectual copyright law.
